I was thinking this morning about the new All-Time Popular Cake Photos on the home page. I really like this and I enjoy being exposed to cakes I may not have seen or reminded of some of my favorites.

BUT, it occured to me that there are lots of awesome cake photos on CC that, for whatever reason, don't have enough Saves to show up under All-Time Popular cakes.

I thought it might be fun to start a thread where we can show other CC members cakes from our favorites that are less well known.

For continuity's sake, let's stick to this format:

1) Give links for up to three cakes from your favorites that you think deserve a look (preferably with 20 saves or less)
2) For each one mention the name of the decorator and what you like about the cake/why you have it saved.


Here are mine:

1) This is by PinkPanther


I love the color scheme on this cake and the combo of stripes and roses is so pretty! Check out the cool bottom border. r

2) This is by rudycutie


This is such a lovely shade of green. The ivory piping makes it look like embroidered fabric. I love the tiny bead border at the bottom, too.

3) This is by meghabyte


Check out these crisp buttercream edges, the beautiful buttercream flowers, and the great banner!

The easiest way is just to copy and paste. It should automatically turn into a link when your post comes up.

If you don't know how to copy and paste, someone else will have to help out. I have a Mac and the commands are Apple C and Apple V, but I don't know how to do it on a PC.

This is great! Here's a few of my faves:

by khoudek - I just love the look of this figure. A friend of mine said she'd like him on a cake for her dad's birthday, with the words, "Watch your back!"

by shelbur10 - Those figures are amazing, and the whole cake just looks great. As a mom of a Mario fan, I can so see a cake like this in my future!

by CakeL8T - these are just so clean and elegant. Beautiful!

BTW, this is a great thread!

Thank you chocolateandpeanutbutter. He was a challenge. If you make him, make the tombstone thicker than mine so it will be easier for him to rest on it.
